Baser Joins SHEEO as Senior Policy Analyst

Sean joins SHEEO

by Jewel Caruso

Current doctoral candidate, Sean Baser, joined the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association in early October as a senior policy analyst. 

Baser's new role will allow him to provide support on many SHEEO projects and initiatives. These responsibilities include researching and monitoring  noncredit postsecondary education programs and state authorization practices. Baser will also contribute to the production of the SHEEO membership report and the Strong Foundations survey of postsecondary data systems. 

Previously, Baser was a graduate assistant at the University of Georgia as well as a research associate at the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia. His research interests include the nexus of education politics, policy, and governance. In the past, his research has examined state authorization, interest groups, the role of political nonprofits and “dark money” in higher education, dual enrollment, community college governance, and tenure. 

Baser holds an associates degree in business administration, dual bachelor's degrees in political science and management information systems, and a master’s in higher education. 

With this transition, Baser joins other McBee IHE graduates and students at SHEEO, President Rob Anderson (PhD 2014), Rachel Burns (PhD 2018), senior policy analyst, and current doctoral student, Pearson Brown, state policy intern.
